Appleton library planning escapes budget cuts

Terry Dawson is probably breathing a little easier today.

Link to November 13 Appleton Post Crescent article.

Funding to help determine if the city needs a new or expanded library received Common Council approval following a 5½-hour meeting that began Wednesday and ended today.

As the clock hand passed 12:30 this morning, aldermen voted 10-6 to approve a $150 million operating budget for 2009.

The vote included rejection of a resolution seeking to remove $75,000 from the Appleton Public Library’s budget. The money is intended to hire a consultant to determine specific space needs for a planned library renovation or replacement project.
